A fine perspective view of the Island of St.Helena in the South Atlantic. The location of the Island directly on the navigation route from Europe to the Cape of Good Hope meant that it became an important port of call for V.O.C. and European vessels sailing to and from Asia and Southern Africa in the late 16th and early 17th Century.
Two large, and very elaborate, strapwork cartouches feature the Portuguese coat-of-arms and a dedication to the Fugger family of merchants and financiers. It is further embellished with a very fine compass rose.

Theodore de Bry, a German engraver and book dealer, began a compilation of early voyages in 1590 and had published six parts at the time of his death in 1598. His widow, two sons, and another family member continued the work, which comprised a total of fifty-four parts when it was completed in 1630. The publication is in two series, denoted the Grands Voyages and the Petit Voyages.

A German edition of the Petit Voyages was published in 1599 in Frankfurt am Main. A second German edition came out in 1616. Latin editions were published in 1609 and 1629.
